The radical KTM X-Bow - the composite sportscar built by motorcycle manufacturer KTM and using a mid-mounted Audi 2.0T engine - secured a sensational one-two-three championship finish in the debut season of the Sports Light category of the GT4 European Cup.
German X-Bow driver Christopher Haase was crowned Sports Light champion after claiming first place in class in the final race of the season at Nogaro, Italy earlier this month. Team mates Denis Retera and Catharina Felser finished second and third for the season respectively, ahead of Sports Light entrants driving cars from Donkervoort and Lotus.
The Reiter Engineering-run KTM X-Bow has dominated proceedings throughout the 18-round championship, often claiming finishes ahead of more powerful `senior' GT4 Aston Martins, Ford Mustangs and BMW Z4Ms.
True to KTM's `Ready to Race' philosophy, the X-Bow competed in near-standard road specification, with only minor revisions made only to meet FIA safety regulations.
